It's always exciting to be part of the planning for BCNA forums around Australia. Next week three of our staff (Lyn Swinburne, Amanda Winiata and Jess Weir) head to QLD to host another two forums as part of the 'Supporting Women in Rural Areas Diagnosed with Breast Cancer Program', funded by the Australian Government.

The first of the forums is being held in Rockhampton on Wednesday 9 June, which we learned is also Rocky Show Day. Over 130 people have registered to attending including members from followoing BCNA Member Groups:

  • Bosom Buddies - Gympie
  • Breast Buddies - Gladstone
  • Women's Cancer Support Group - Rockhampton
  • B'rest Friends - Bundaberg

Our team then flies to Townsville to host another forum on Thursday 10 June. Over 140 people are expected to come listen to inspirational speakers and hear the latest information about breast cancer treatment. Included in these numbers are members from the following BCNA Member Groups:

  • BB Girls (Bald and Beautiful Girls) - Cairns
  • Breast Friends BC Support Group - Charter Towers
  • Burdekin Breast Cancer Support Group
  • Innisfail Breast Cancer Support Group
  • Livin' Laughin' Lovin' It group - Townsville
  • Mackay Breast Cancer Support Group
  • Malanda Cancer Support Group
  • Mt Isa & North West QLD Breast Cancer Support Group
  • Tully & District Cancer Support Group
  • Twin Titties (Dragons Abreast Townsville Inc)
